Floyd welcome to the list. You will find it to be good info, and it is a
list you can feel a part of. I joined probably abt 1998 and have gotten so
much info. on my Gillihan's, and so on. My name is Wilma June Gillihan
(Vest) Ramsey. I was married 1946 to Emmett Vest a son of Earthel, and Mamie
(Rush) Vest. We married in 1946 and lived in the little house just above his
parents on the Jumbo rd.. Was living there when our first child Janice was
born 1947. I remember the Copeland house. Emmett and i divorced in late 50's
and i married James Edward"Ed" Ramsey from Violet Hill. We now live in
Henderson 15 mi East of Mountain Home ,Ar. in Baxter Co. Lived in Melbourne
till 1992. We have one dau Karen. Both the girls live here by us.
I guess the Emma Copeland i have an obit of Wa.sister to Dolores (Jones)
Gillihan Puckett was some of your family weren't they? Dolores was married
to my cousin Ervin Gillihan. He passed away in 1999 and she married Leland
Puckett He passed away recentely.
Hope, you enjoy, and don't be afraid to ask queation's for some one may just
come up with an answer. Our list "mom" Jean is the greatest.
Take care, and God Bless. Junebug
